Cowboys are known for cooking resourcefully, using whatever they have with them out on the range to make a great meal. Legend has it that coffee was one of the staples that often found its way into the preparation of their steaks. It gives a deep flavor that brings out the best in beef. Coffee, along with smoky ancho chile powder, dry mustard, and a hint of sweetness from molasses-laced brown sugar, make a steak rub that will knock your boots off.
Serves 4
Serving Size: About 7 Slices


    • Cooking spray
    • 1½ teaspoons ground ancho chile or regular chili powder
    • 1½ teaspoons finely ground espresso coffee
    • 1/2 teaspoon dark brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • One 1¼ pound shoulder center steak (ranch steak) or top sirloin, about 1¼ inches thick


Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and preheat it over medium-high heat or preheat the grill. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients except the meat and rub it well into both sides of the steak. Cook the steak for 5 minutes per side, turning once, for medium-rare or to your desired degree of doneness. Allow the steak to sit for 5 minutes before slicing thinly.
